The Concept of Cookies
Frederik Grandegger hereby informs you that Cookies are files that web pages can download onto your computer every time you access a web page, and that they are created in order to help the web portal analyse the use made by users of that web portal. They can be updated or retrieved by the entity responsible for their installation.
Cookies are tools that play an essential role when providing Information Society Services, as they enable a web page to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of web users or their equipment. Depending on the information obtained this can be used to recognise the user and improve on the services provided.
Types of Cookies
A classification of different cookies based on a series of categories is provided below. It is important to bear in mind that one cookie might belong to more than one category.
Depending on the entity that manages the domain from which the cookies are sent and that processes the data obtained, the cookies can be:
· Own cookies: these are sent to the user's computer from a computer or domain managed by the publisher and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
· Third-party cookies: cookies that are sent to the user's computer from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
According to the period of time the cookies are stored in the users' computers/browsers, they can be divided into:
· Session cookies: cookies designed to collect and store browsing data while users access a web portal. They are usually used to store information that is only worth keeping in order to provide the service requested by the user on a single occasion.
· Persistent cookies: cookies in which the data continues to be stored on the user's device and can be accessed and processed for a time defined by the party responsible for the cookie; this can range from a few minutes to several years.
Depending on the purpose for which the data obtained through cookies is processed, cookies are classified as:
· Necessary cookies and trackers: cookies or other identifiers used for activities that are strictly necessary to manage or provide the service that was requested. As such, they do not require consent.
· Functional cookies and trackers: these allow us to offer you a quality experience, as they memorise your viewing preferences, search history and possible connections to your browsing.
· Statistical cookies and trackers: these allow us to evaluate our audience and compile usage statistics with a view to improving the quality of our services.
· Advertising cookies and trackers: these allow us to offer you content, service and adverts adapted to your profile, your browsing and your search history.
· Analytical cookies and trackers: these allow us to collect anonymous information in a standardised format about user browsing and behavioural patterns.
It should be noted that one cookie can have more than one purpose.
